Numbers continue to fall as we return to normality in Japan. I hope all those who want the vaccine can have ASAP so they can feel more comfortable being out and about. Hoping we can open up more in October, wouldn’t mind a couple, of trips and would like to experience the night life.

Nation-wide numbers on N Star now. Too many young people getting very sick even though numbers are down. SPO2 down in the low 80's is quite dangerous.

NHK giving good info on the current affairs of the numbers but you need to know Japanese. I think there is a translation at 7pm.

Japan is doing fine in my opinion. Reality has changed.

Thanks for the news tip kakyu: I always watch that or record it when I am out and about traveling. Some hotels do not provide that channel for some reason.

Is covid over ?

One thing's for sure. It's going to be strange walking around the city seeing people without masks. There are people that I've met 2 years ago, and see regularly, that I've still yet to see their face.
